My relationship with Edogawa Rampo is probably the best out of all the Japanese authors I have read so far He is probably the only one I do not dislike and I am definitely going to check out of his workI am yet to read Edgar Alan Poe s books so I do not know how he does his mysteries but Edogawa Rampo s style reminds me of a Sherlockian mystery rather than Christie s classic structure That is especially true for the last story in this bind up The Dwarf where we are never given the information needed to uncover the perpetrator by ourselves I find this kind of unfair because I would love to play detective every now and then What I didn t like about this book was that even though it is supposedly Akechi Kogoro s earliest cases we know nothing about him except the fact that he is an amateur detective He doesn t have any uirks like Holmes or Poirot We are just told that he likes to talk about his reasoning behind the murder mysteries he is involved with and is a little condescending I find this dissatisfactory As the most famous Japanese detective I would have wanted I wonder if this is perhaps because unlike the aforementioned he does not have an assistant who records the story for usAnyway I will be checking out his stories about the Detective Boys and Twenty Faces as well some time in the future After all Edogawa Rampo doesn t bore me to death
